"fundamentally, we want the future to satisfy the values of us now"

What if we don't want this after the fact? Is it not the case that our values have changed pretty radically in the last 100 years, much less the last 800-1000? If we do create some kind of value-enforcing smatter/"sovereign"/whathave you, is that not a kind of horror, the social ethic being frozen in time? 

I hope for a future that vastly exceeds the conceptual & ethical values of the time we find ourselves in.
